CMU to help airport corridor, North Huntingdon with transportation issues

Officials with the Airport Corridor Transportation Association and North Huntingdon will work with traffic experts at Carnegie Mellon University to develop solutions for very different traffic situations.

The airport area group is looking to expand its popular shuttle bus system that takes workers from a Port Authority bus stop directly to their job while North Huntingdon wants help with moving traffic through the area when a major reconstruction project begins on busy Route 30 in a few years. Those projects were selected last week from 11 proposals to CMU’s Smart Mobility Challenge, which uses faculty, graduate students and undergraduate students in its Traffic21 institute to help communities solve problems.
